DHEA and Addison's
Jun 12, 2004
... If you ask for opinions it's a good idea to actually include the facts. I don't think T4 and T3 urine tests are considered useful because so many divergent things can affect them. Similarly it's only DHEA-S in the blood that counts, why do you think urine concentration is important. What symptoms lead doctors to perform these unusual tests? (14 replies)
... I'm a 36yo male and need help understanding the following: Elevated ACTH (400% over top) 2 hours after waking. Blood test repeated several times (not lab error). Declines to high-norm later in the day. So I guess it's not a ACTH producing tumor because it has this rythm? Declining ACTH/Cortisol ratio over several months (needing more ACTH to create cortisol). ... (2 replies)

Dhea level high

... An odd set of tests you have there. I think you need another saliva test, but done 4 to 6 times in the day. High cortisol tends to push down DHEA and estrogen, but maybe not in your case, because the rest of the day your cortisol might be very low. ... (11 replies)

... I think what I read is that you had a high urine cortisol and low DHEA-S. You need to see a pituitary specialist and get checked for cylical Cushing's syndrome. I had many low and normal tests before I was diagnosed. DHEA is OTC, but it will raise your estrogen and testosterone. If you need to do testing on your other hormones, which it sounds like you do, then you... (5 replies)
